The Scholastic Testing Service (STS) – High School Placement Test (HSPT) measures a student’s ability in cognitive and basic skill areas and can be administered in a relatively limited amount of time. Since the entire battery is standardized the end results are directly comparable for all test areas and can be related to the level of the students at the time of entering high school.
Brother Rice offers a series of optional prep classes for the HSPT. These allow prospective students the best opportunity to succeed on the placement test and prepare to attend Brother Rice. Pick one of the prep classes and/or take the practice test with tutoring:
Brother Rice offers many opportunities for students to prepare for the November and December HSPT. In the Prep Class, experienced Brother Rice teachers will provide tips and tricks to prepare students to do their best. Brother Rice will also host two practice exam opportunities. The exam is proctored, timed and scored. Students will take a practice test and review the answers with a current BRHS Honor Student.
